As long as I can remember Southend United where planning a new stadium ?
It would be good for the town as well as SUFC more jobs for local people more fans to the ground
but is it going to happen I would love to see it happen. I was a bit worried when I heard it may only have three sides or it could be like MK stadium

What are your thoughts I have a poll . Please no bad or negative comments just your thoughts please

Kind Regards

i had a chuckle last night reading red card roy last night. When he joined southend again in the late 80s vic jobson was very bullish about a brand new 25000 all seater stadium being built.

If the council there had any pride in the Football team ,they would help make it happen,I dont know a lot about Ron Martin so i cannot comment on him. But talk of a new Stadium as been going on ever since i was a young kid climbing over the wall into the toilets on a Saturday arvo back in the 50s to stand behind the goal to watch Southend play.Dont think it will happen in my life time , I think it would take all of the people in Southend to rise up and show the Council and others how important it is to the town of Southend.

They have helped it happen, they agreed the plans.

The football club is a private business used by 5,000 people every two weeks, I think they would find it hard to justify to the hundreds of thousands of other Southend residents why they were financing a private developement with their taxes, even if they had the money to do so which they certainly dont.

I am now seriously beginning to wonder if it will ever happen. I don't think I can recall any official news coming out of the club regarding the new stadium so far this year. Its as if its been completely forgotten about. I think if nothing else the club owes the fans some sort of update, the silence is incredibly frustrating.
